PLENARY 1: INTERSECTION BETWEEN PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT, DATA SYSTEMS AND HISPANIC HEALTH (10:00am –10:45am) SPEAKER: Mark Hugo Lopez, PhD Director, Hispanic Research, Pew Research Center

This presentation will provide an overview of secondary data analyses performed by the Pew Research Center's Hispanic Trends Project. The talk will also address the nation's changing demographics and the impact of policies on population and need of Latino leaders, Linking Big Data, Career Advancement & Hispanic Health (e.g., health insurance, use of health care, disability, and social determinants of health). Specific examples will be provided of successes and challenges in translating quantitative research for policymakers to improve Latino health and well being.

MODERATOR: Darryl Brown, PhD, Member At Large Hispanic Serving Health Professions Schools (HSHPS)

PLENARY 2: HISPANIC COMMUNITY HEALTH STUDY (HCHS)/STUDY OF LATINOS (SOL) (10:45am–11:30am) SPEAKER(S): Gregory A Talavera, MD, MPH Co-Director Institute for Behavioral and Community Health Professor, Division of Behavioral Sciences Graduate School of Public Health, San Diego State University

Lorraine Silsbee, MHS, Epidemiology Branch, Division of Cardiovascular Sciences National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, NIH This plenary session will provide an overview of the study design, methods, and key findings from the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL). SOL is a multicenter epidemiologic study in Hispanic/Latino populations to determine the role of acculturation in the prevalence and development of disease, and to identify risk factors playing a protective or harmful role in Hispanics/Latinos. Participants will learn how they can be involved in data analysis and future data collection for SOL.

This activity will be followed by a round table discussion of the program with HHS, NIH, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Project Officer.

The goal of the proposed workshop is to identify common challenges and foster interdisciplinary collaboration and synergy in the broad area of small vessel biology in health and disease, across various organs of the human body. The workshop will achieve this goal by strategically bringing together researchers from different relevant biomedical research areas related to small vessel biology or disease, many of whom have not yet worked together to significant extent. This has created knowledge gaps that the workshop will address through sharing research findings followed by several cross-disciplinary panel discussions, including a final discussion of lessons learned, common challenges, as well as immediate and future opportunities for synergy and collaboration to accelerate future advances in the field.

The workshop is intended not only to share relevant information across the NIH, extramural research community, health care providers, and the public, but also to enhance collaborative efforts in small blood vessel research across broad areas of interests.
